Ever since its domestication, the horse has played a central role in the history of mankind. This multifunctional animal was responsible for revolutionizing transportation and fighting techniques, which led ultimately to significant social, economic and cultural changes. Horses in Celtic Culture examines a fascinating topic that to date has received very little attention from historians and literary specialists.
